Having the Truth Within

It is not enough to know the Truth.
I want to live in the Truth.

When pride starts to creep in,
I want to continue to live in the Truth about
Who You are and
who I am.

When lust calls,
I want to continue to live in the Truth about
what is best and
what pleases You.
I want to pursue true pleasure and true love.

When anxiety starts to gnaw on me,
I want to live in the Truth of
Your love,
Your sovereignty, and
Your presence.

My mind so easily forgets the Truth in such moments.
I need to be filled with the Spirit of Truth.
My life is hid with Christ in God, and
I want Christ to be my living, constant
wisdom from God, and righteousness and sanctification, and redemption
(1 Corinthians 1:30, NASB).

I want to walk always, second by second,
mind, heart, and body,
in wisdom from above
which is pure, then peaceable, gentle, reasonable,
full of mercy and good fruits,
unwavering, without hypocrisy.
I want to daily sow the seed whose fruit is righteousness (James 3:17-18, NASB).

O Lord, my loving Lord,
be that wisdom in me always, forever,
from here throughout eternity.
Be that righteousness, that sanctification.
Be the Truth in me,
setting me free to be and do all that You desire.
Constantly breathe in me the mind and spirit of Christ.
